F Series Clay Treater Housings


Clay treaters are usually placed upstream of a coalescer filter separator system to remove surface active agents (surfactants), colour and additives from jet fuel.

These unwanted contaminants may be present in fuel at the processing and refining levels or picked up from various transportation methods such as trucks, ships and pipelines that carry several types of petroleum products in addition to jet fuel.

The contaminant compounds will accumulate and disarm the coalescer cartridge and reduce the water coalescing efficiency of the coalescer separator.

Clay treatment provides a complete adorptive system that removes the surfactant compounds, colour and additives by adsorption and delivers treated fuel to the coalescer separator while prolonging the life of the coalescer cartridges of the downstream filter separator.

Clay treater housings have no internal moving parts.

The product flows through the housing inlet chamber and equalizer tube. The equalizer tube evenly distributes product through each clay cartridge. Clay elements are vibra-packed to capacity with the highest grade of Attapulgus clay.

This clay has the appearance of very fine sand, with each granule having hundreds of tiny, fiber-like crystals that capture molecular surfactants. The surface area of Attapulgus clay exceeds 13 acres per pound. Facet recommends a maximum flow of 26 lpm (7 gpm) per cartridge.
